ipsearch: Hi there

Would you recommend to buy it from Parallel import like Pb tech or fairbuy ? I am bit scared of buying from parallel import due to their warranty policy.

Cheers


I bought my s2 from Expert Infotech (parallel import). It worked just fine. And in the worst case scenario if it did break down, I knew where I had to take it back to... So buying from a parallel import is not bad.. but buy from a well reknown parallel import retailer..


Don't get from Fairbuy. Last phone I got from them have been rooted 10 times and the box is opened and they didn't bother erase the custom kernel counters.

Thanks for the headsup on Fairbuy, I was planning to buy one from there as they were the cheapest on pricespy

Hi guys, not sure if this is a known issue or just me, but is there a way to keep haptic feedback on all the time when pressing the soft keys? Whenever I turn the phone off, it seems to deactivate itself and next time I turn it on there is no haptic feedback.

No just you. Software glitch may be or power saving mode is on.

:) No problem buddy. I hardly use power saving mode. Find no need for it yet since the battery life is quite good.
Glad I can hit an easy solution to your problem.

Can everyone else take photos whilst videoing? I see in the mnaual that when videoing that there should be a camera icon that you can touch to take photos at the same time...my camera icon is missing when I am videoing...have I done something with my settings to cause this?

Just tried it... once you start recording the icon should appear on the bottom right..

Did you enable the Anti-Shaking on Video recording option?

If you do then this is the cause of it. Disable it and it should show the take picture option after. :)

Source? Pass experience.

What resolution are the photos taken while videoing? Are they the same as taking a normal shot?
